Thank You - and MUCH LOVE!!
Thank you so much Chowhound Team, Jim, CNET and everyone for bringing us the next phase of chowhound. Your hard work is very much appreciated and does not go unnoticed.
Let's face it - people HATE change and will blame blame blame for anything that makes them uncomfortable. I hope your skin is tough and you can let it slide. They'll get used to it. People react so often before they have a clue whether or not the problem is actually between the chair and the computer.
So Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! All the love in the world. Hang in there and thanks for being so open to new ideas and tweaks (like Hot Posts!!! Can't wait!)
Really, I can't believe how much I love the new software. The hard work is sooo appreciated. Very, very impressed.
Really any reports by me in the three site boards is just to give a heads up on something I've spotted or reporting my learning experiences. Even though I didn't know there was a little overview on the board, the software is some of the most intuitive forum software I've used.
It keeps the simplicity of the old site and improves on it.
Good dogs ... good, good dogs.
I agree. And as much as I miss the Hot Posts, and as much as I think the designers missed some opportunities, I do generally love the change, and very much understand and appreciate the time and effort involved to make this work.
So, at the risk of seeming to be part of a Greek chorus proclaiming the new site to be the worst thing in the history of mankind, I would join with the others, above, and congratulate Jim and his colleagues for this great new step in the evolution of Chow.
I totally agree! I'm really digging the new site, even if there are a few minor bumps and nuances I'm adjusting to. Things that felt strange and counterintuitive yesterday are feeling more natural today. It just takes time, patience, and an open spirit and this new board will feel like home w/ all my chow buddies at play. To me, these adaptive skills generalize to ferreting out the good stuff at a restaurant or trying to get the best out of a recipe.
Thanks to the CH Team and CNet for all your hard work and offering this new site so quickly. I didn't think it would be done til later this year. I look forward to the gradual improvements over time, but hope that you're patting yourselves on the back for a job well done! Bravo!
